In a move that will cetainly move the mobile market in New Zealand, TelstraClear has announced business plans that are suitable for all company sizes - from individuals to large corporations.
The main differentiators are the new casual data pricing - just $3 per megabyte (MB), a third of what competitor Vodafone charges - and the non-limited included minutes: unlike Vodafone and Telecom offerings TelstraClear makes no distinction of which destination network is being called when users use up their plan minutes.
A simple premise of one bill, one point of contact and one provider is at the heart of the offering, says TelstraClear’s Head of Mobile Services John Bone.
“We will be aggressively targeting whole of business for new and existing customers. TelstraClear offers a differentiated mobile service and can create tailor-made solutions for large corporate customers, while offering a range of great value plans for the small-medium sized business market.”
“There’s no doubt the market has wanted a third mobile player and the benefits this competition brings. We are one of only two whole of business providers in the market. This allows further opportunities for customers to do more business with us. The more they do - the better off they are.”
BizMobile Voice offers three straightforward plans that allows customers to simply choose a plan that fits their business mobile usage.
“BizMobile plans give you control of your spend. If you talk a little, pay as you go. If you need to talk a lot, then get your minutes upfront and get no surprises later. You’ll save when you talk to the people who you regularly talk to, and because BizMobile is network neutral, you won’t pay more when you’re talking to people on other networks.”
A business range of handset options are offered, including models from Nokia, Samsung, Okta, and Blackberry.
The business mobile offering follows an initial pre-launch of a small selection of TelstraClear mobile services to small-medium sized businesses in November last year. The BizMobile plans for voice and data launched today include plans from $30 per month with billed minutes, or bundles of 200 and 400 minutes with additional 100 minutes packs available.
Mobile data plans start from $3 per megabyte on casual usag, to $75 for a bundle of 3GB. In certain plains a $10 "insurance" is available that will double the bundled allowance for an extra $10 if the limit is reached.
